We have a range of Outreach activities happening in Schools across the Midlands throughout the year. These activities include online and in person workshops for primary school students and career talks for secondary school students. We also run specific events for Engineers week, Maths Week, Science Week and Tech week each year. Our outreach programme for 2022 is now full but we will be putting out a call for our 2023 programme later in the year, keep an eye on our social media channels.
Engineers Week 2022
Saturday March 5th – Friday March 11th
Midlands Science promotes Engineers Week every year in the midlands through a range of school outreach activities for primary and secondary school students. This year we had another jam-packed week which included both online and in person activities for schools. We had career workshops for secondary school students and workshops exploring the work of the most famous movie engineer Dr Tony Stark.
If you are looking for free online resources for your school/class, why not check out our Science at Home series, specifically the videos focused on engineering – how a fridge works, how a microphone works, how radio waves work, how electricity works or how do motors spin.
Tech Week 2022
Saturday March 19th – Friday March 25th
During Tech Week 2022 we offered a range of free career workshops to secondary schools across the midlands. These career talks linked working professionals from the Tech industry with second level students. Students got to hear first hand about jobs in the industry, the challenges and benefits to the role and what they can do right now to help them get into the industry in the future. We are very grateful to have such fantastic speakers volunteering their time for our schools as these talks are so import to give students visibility of STEM careers.
